So in a round-about way we can thank the jw's for there work for proving just the opposite of what they preach which is, "most people are lost, living debauched lives of violence and hate , etc......" instead most people are very good! I know that jw's will say that "holy spirit protected them in the ministry and that's why the worst of the worst didn't happen to them", but take holy spirit out of it and it paints a different picture. Any thoughts?............wf
